I think it works the same with tasks and accomplishments; and I know it works the same way with relationships and our interactions with areas of our faith. Acts of worship mean much more when we are intentionally engaged with them. Fellowship with one another is much more satisfying when we intentionally focus on that interaction. I think this mindset is where such phrases as “be the ball” or “be in the moment” come from; sometimes they are said in a spirit of humor, but that humor makes them no less true.
Let us be fully intentional in all we do, say, think, and feel; opening us up to the grandeur that God had intended for us. For I am convinced that God was intentional in creating this world, and remains ever intentional in loving and blessing all of us.
May God’s intentional love, grace, and blessing always be upon you… Pastor Bob
